  • Hip and Lower Stomach Muscles

    The rectus abdominis is indeed the most well-known and prominent muscle of the abdominal region. It is a paired muscle, meaning there is one on each side of the midline, and it extends vertically from the pubic bone (pubis) to the lower ribs (fifth, sixth, and seventh ribs).

  • Hip and Lower Stomach Exercises

    Stretching and exercising the hip muscles can indeed help improve flexibility and loosen them up. It's always important to ensure proper form and technique when performing any exercise to avoid injury.


    Based on your description, it seems like you're performing a variation of the lower body crunch where you lie on your back, lift one leg up onto the knee, and perform a crunch motion.
